THERE is a chance to catch a live performance by the Bolshoi Ballet without leaving Lancaster next week.

The Dukes cinema is continuing to screen ballet live from venues around the world, and March 11 sees the Bolshoi perform Le Corsaire.

A spokesman for the Dukes said: “This ballet in three acts is loosely based on the long poem by Lord Byron.

“Le Corsaire is a swashbuckling romantic tale of the rescue of a beautiful slave from her tyrannical master by a handsome pirate, and features some of ballet’s most famous scenes.”

Seating for this live screening at 3pm is allocated and advance booking is recommended.

Tickets cost £12/£11 (concessions), £8 children and can be booked in advance from the Dukes box office on 01524 598500 or at
